Well I have a feeling that the ARM Cortex A8 800MHz maybe better than a 1GHz Snapdragon in some respects, but not in others. So I'm not sure if I'm ok by that.
Samsung haven't told us how good it's multimedia capabilities really compare for gaming to the I9000. If the I8520 is to be a great Multimedia mobile, then surely the 3D graphics chip is important & imperative that they at least include a good one.
One reason and something which bothers me is that samsung seem to be mixing great ingredients but not putting the correct ingredients with the correct phones. Don't get me wrong, samsung is including some out of the world tech way ahead of *some* other manufacturers, but it won't take long for nokia to play catch up with a High end phone soon.
For instance The I9000 will have the most powerful 3D graphics chip integrated into a mobile handset. This comes with Snapdragon Chipset as standard, but the ARM Cortex A8 maybe just as snappy, but does it have the great 3D Hardware Engine Chipset that phones with snapdragon automatically get.
So the I9000 is better at gaming but the I8520 looks like it will integrate better External speakers than the I9000. I like good speakers like the ones on my N5800 or better without headphones for ringtones or gaming sometimes.
Other than that the I8520 really is the better phone. Slightly smaller screen with SAMOLED high res, longer battery life, same or higher internal memory, good speakers, higher quality camera, HD 1280 x 720P video recording. Android sounds nice.
Anything here is going to be way better than my N5800. I don't wan't to sound ungrateful really, as I will probably buy this phone anyway no matter what hardware functionalities or extra useful niceties it may receive.
SAMOLED + 1800MAH. Excellent batter life. Considering my Nokia N5800 with TFT lower res screen would need upgrade from 1320MAH to 2000MAH to compete with the Nokia N8 with SAMOLED with 1280MAH batter. The samsung is sure to last a long time.
Whatever happens I can't wait for the news. Wave is being release on 28th May in UK stores, rumours that Galaxy may be released even sooner. That means all that is left is to turn attention to *I8520* phone. No new NEWs announcements from GSMarena yet but I'm sure that will change VERY soon!
